Want a chic updo look that lasts all night for your upcoming holiday parties? Well you don’t have to spend a fortune at the hairdresser’s or be an ace with a curling iron to get a great look that’s chic and sexy:

Easy Party Updo


  • Teasing or fine-toothed comb
  • Comb or brush
  • Hair spray
  • Bobby pins
  • Hairband or barrett


  1. First separate a section of hair at the front of your hair from ear to ear.
  2. Pull the rest of your hair into a pony tail at the crown of your head.
  3. Using your teasing brush, gently brush the ponytail from root to tip in short, smooth strokes, to tease your hair and make it messy and big. Spritz with hairspray to hold the tease.
  4. Now, take the front section of hair and tease it a little underneath.
  5. Using your brush, gently smooth the front section back over the teased pony tail. Gather the ends of your hair and tuck them underneath, pin in place. You’re creating a pouf or bouffant look.
  6. Add hairspray all over, smooth hair, and use pins to fix any stray hairs. Finish off with a sparkly barrett or hairband to really make the look classy and chic.

    Okay….so i tried this one night before going to a holiday party hosted by my boyfriend’s parents (whom i had never met). This process was very quick and easy. When it was done, i honestly felt like a model. My boyfirend even commented on it, which is odd since i wasnt JUST in my bra. Anyways, soon as i walked into the party, i could see the mouths of his parents just drop. They complemented my hair, saying that it makes me look and act mature, and it made them feel honored for me to be dating their son. Also, during that fabulous night, i got six other complements and I even got a gay guy’s number! One fabulous night because of one fantastic hair-do!
